    Dear Sir

    i just updated my phone to iOS 8.0.1, there seems to be no issue regards to dropping of signals or any sort but what i found just now is that when i download any app from app store and then exit from the app store, A WHITE SHADOW(like a light) appears on the top right hand corner of the phone??

    pls can anyone tell me what is the issue and how to resolve it

    I have no idea what that could be. Heck yours is the first I've ever heard of such a thing, to be quite honest. The only white light that should be seen is that from the camera's flash, especially if you have it set to flash when notifications are received. You might want to make a genius bar appointment with the nearest Apple Store just in case your display is malfunctioning.

    even i dont have any idea... its just in the app store, rest of the apps n the phone seems to be working fine..no problems at all except app store. dont know what is it..never there was a problem like this in ios 7.. probably i have restore it n install a fresh copy..what say??

    i dont think display has to do anything with this bcoz rest of the phone is working fine.. only app store when exiting it after installing any app or the app is under installation..

    god knows.. hopefully reset will do it..

    Not sure what it is, but as a matter of habit, I would NEVER walk towards it.

    What you are seeing is the bottom left of the A from AppOfTheDay. I noticed this after upgrading to iOS 9, but perhaps it was there in iOS 8 and I never noticed. This only occurs under a specific set of circumstances; when there is an app with a long name in a certain position. When the home button is pressed the apps on the underlying screen slide in from the sides over the top of the active app, and the long text appears as a white flash. See the attached animated gif, although I was not quick enough to capture the first image with the app in the foreground full screen covered by the white flash.
